|Necrovision - Niggurath|
What evils lurk within the hearts of man? What terror lies in wait through echoing corridors of the past? Where did the initial writers go after the first half of the game? Believe it or not! Welcome to Let's Play Necrovision; made back in 2009 this was the flagship title for Farm 51 and as such is to be seen as their crowning glory (or at least a shiny bauble in the eyes of invalids). But I shall do my best to bring you on a tour of the game, to show you the sights and to slap a few Jerries in ...

Let's play Tyrian, properly for once. Tyrian is a computer game developed by World Tree Games and published in 1995 by Epic MegaGames. It's a straight forward top down shoot em up, and it's super loving awesome. WHich is the reason why I'm going to play through most of it. I had a really good op written here before, but then around episode 4 I hosed up so not the op is a gimp. I might fix this later, but not now...

|Stuntman - TyrantSabre|
Stuntman is a somewhat convoluted, complicated series which isn't what you'd call a blockbuster franchise, or even a cult classic. It's a game released in 2002 by Atari and developed by Reflections Interactive (better known as the original developers of the Driver series). Its sequel, Stuntman Ignition, wasn't released or developed by either of its original owners; the rights to the franchise were bought out by THQ in 2006 and the title was farmed out to developers Paradigm Entertainment, which ...

Released in the summer of 1995, the PC title Phantasmagoria was a ground breaking title not only for Sierra On-line (Sierra mostly having been known for it's much more comedic or fantasy based Quest series games; Phantasmagoria was only the second title to reach into really 'adult' territory being beaten by a year by Gabriel Knight) but also for computer games as a whole with it's dramatic usage of full motion video and actors (Phantasmagoria is stated as being the first video game title to use ...

Hello all and welcome to my Let's Play of The Bizarre Adventures of Woodruff and the Amazing Schibble of Azimuth. Woodruff is an obscure Sierra adventure game made by Coktel Vision, the same company that made all the Goblins games. Woodruff has the same art style as the Goblins games, but gameplay-wise it's much different, as it has a lot of dialog. Puzzle-wise, though, Woodruff has the same type of insane and completely illogical puzzles that the Goblins games had...

This title received quite a bit of hype since its release in 2010, including a few “Game of Year’s” bestowed upon it and other achievements on its developers. While originally released only on XBLA, it has been ported to PSN, Steam, and more recently, the Mac App Store. It was also included in an indie game trio pack alongside Trials HD and ’Splosion Man last year. Is all the exaltation reasonable? Is this game really so good as to put it on such a high pedestal?

Who remembers the golden age of licensed games? The days when despite the fact that they were just for marketing strategy, these games were well-developed and proven to be decent or even great games? I think it's safe to assume that this game, even though it's not one that stuck out as well, is a great part of that pile of actual effort. Although as children, we did not grow accustomed to an Aladdin who jumps on his foes, at least he demonstrates some unique aspects of platforming that you would...

|Stonekeep - davidspackage|
Stonekeep. Interplay, 1995. What began as a simple tile-based dungeon crawler was swept up by ambition and pigheaded-ness, making what could have been a true classic into a long overdue, technologically disappointing odd duck that few remember. Sure, it had its strengths – atmospheric music, a very simplified user interface that allowed focus on exploration and combat, interesting graphics (digitized actors in monster suits!) – but a tile-based faux-3D game, in first person perspective, at a...

Pikmin was developed and produced by Nintendo, and then released in 2001 in America. Shigeru Miyamoto helped with the overall design of the game, basing it off of his original idea of Super Mario 128. The game was very well received, praising it's use of excellent atmosphere and mix of difficulty. Unfortunately, the game was faulted for placing a time limit on the player. Pikmin is a cross between an RTS and an action platformer...

Fresh off the release of Sly Cooper 3 in 2005, Sucker Punch Productions wanted to do something outside of their comfort zone. Over time, the developers decided they wanted to start making a game about being a new type of super hero and thus the idea for Infamous was born. 4 years later Infamous was released in May 2009 to critical acclaim by gaming publications and gamers alike. The idea of the game is to give the player a great number of super powers and see how the player uses those powers whe...

Outcast is an action-adventure released in 1999 by Belgian developer Appeal. It is a remarkable game for various reasons. It uses a combination of voxels and polygons to create a number of lush, beautiful environments while bosting effects such as bump-mapping, anti-aliasing, depth of field and character shadows without relying on hardware-acceleration. It also features full voice-acting and a fantastic soundtrack performed by the Moscow Symphony Orchestra which you can download here...

Overlord is a 3rd-person fantasy/adventure game where the player assumes the role of an evil overlord. At the start of the game the overlord is ressurected from beneath a pile of rubble to find that his totally sweet overlord pad has been trashed, his gold has been plundered, and even his most basic of evil-doing tools have been carried off, all by a band of pesky do-gooding heroes. So the overlord must roam the countryside putting wrong what once went right and returning evil to its true place ...

Aquaria was released by indie developer Bit Blot in 2007. The game is 2D, nonlinear, exploration, underwater action adventure that is hard to define in terms of genre.

This leads to her going out on an adventure to discover her past and the secrets of the world of Aquaria...

It probably would have languished in obscurity, like most games of its kind in that era, if not for a rather interesting concept.

It's colorful, it's charming, it's got some neat characters, a pretty neat story even if they didn't know all what to do with it and a unique battle system. I find it unique in that it focuses not only on the main combat (dealing damage, healing) but also on a meta-battle of gauge management...
